From the Test Kitchen

Pickled vegetables are a favorite in Asian cuisines for adding balancing acidity to rich flavors, which you’ll create here simply by marinating cucumber with a bit of rice vinegar and salt—the perfect accompaniment to our glazed salmon.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; medium dice the leaves. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Halve the cucumber lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. In a bowl, whisk together the miso paste, maple syrup, and half the sesame oil

Roast the fish & cabbage
2 Roast the fish & cabbage

Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the diced cabbage on the foil. Drizzle with the remaining sesame oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan. Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Coat the other side of the foil with 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Place the seasoned fish on the oiled side, skin side down. Evenly top the fish with the glaze. Roast 14 to 17 minutes, or until the cabbage is browned and tender when pierced with a fork and the fish is cooked through.* Remove from the oven. 

*An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.
